Let’s be honest: keeping your closet tidy is easier said than done. More often than not, people are too busy or in a hurry to keep the closet in perfect order. While this is excusable, it’s still important that you take a day every month or so to organize your closet.
In this post, Handyman Connection of Mountain View discusses how to organize your closet like a professional.
Set the Stage
Set a staging area where you can empty out your closet. We recommend a cleared-out portion of the room, but if for some reason it’s unavailable, you may use your desk, bed or even chairs. Once you’ve found a nice spot in your room, remove everything in your closet and set them neatly in your staging area.
Categorize and Organize
Now, it’s time to organize and categorize your items. Separate your indoor clothes from your outdoor ones and completely remove the items that shouldn’t be in the closet. The same applies to clothes that you’re planning to give away or get rid of. One of the reasons your closet gets unorganized is due to unnecessary items, after all. Set them aside for later disposal.
Eliminate the Unnecessary
Next, get rid of all the unwanted items in your closet. You don’t necessarily have to throw them away; for the old clothes that no longer fit you, you can simply give them away or donate them. As for the unnecessary items, simply return them to where they should be stored.
Clean the Closet
Finally, give your closet a good cleaning up before you return your clothes and other essentials. Dirt and dust bunnies aren’t just unsightly, they can make your closet an unpleasant place.
Do this once every month and we’re confident that your closet space will remain tidy and clean throughout the year. If you need help, fill out our form or give us a call at (650) 437-8999. Let’s talk about your any other home improvement projects you’re itching to tackle, too.
